Experience in Supervision/Mentoring

Lois is also a social worker with a focus on psychotherapy. Her experience spans more than forty years. In the last twenty years a large part of her work has been reflective professional supervision and mentoring. From this she brings a sound practice-based understanding of the client-therapist and student -teacher dynamic, group dynamics, and the unfolding of the mentee’s own unique talents and personality within their field of practice.

Lois is deeply interested in the interface of a teacher’s own personhood and their yoga teaching. As yoga teachers, we are the tool through which our teaching flows. One of the best ways to become a confident and skilled yoga teacher is to explore the interface of the inner Self, through guided reflection on one’s teaching and practice with a trusted and experienced mentor.

Mentoring Supports the Challenges of Teaching Yoga Today

Teaching yoga today can challenge one’s confidence and requires courage to pave one’s path and remain true to one’s values in what is increasingly an industry rather than a service based on an ancient tradition. The insidious nature of burnout from cumulative teaching challenges may result in a loss of direction. Lois’ has faced all these challenges herself and supported others to stay true their own ethics and values in spaces that at times conflict with deeply held principles.
